Lola Lorraine Grady Belcher, 95, of Tulsa, OK passed away Wednesday, October 24, 2018 in Tulsa, OK. She was born in Spearville, KS on February 15, 1923 the daughter of Fred and Lola (Kincheloe) Kleysteuber, sister to her beloved Pauline, and brothers, Maurice, Fred, and Vince. She married Robert Grady on September 25, 1948 in Springfield, IL and he preceded her in death on February 28, 1985.

Lorraine was also preceded in death by both her parents; sister, Pauline Walker; brothers, Fred Kleysteuber, Maurice Kleysteuber, and Vince Kleysteuber.

Lorraine graduated from Halstead College of Nursing and enjoyed working as an RN until she and Bob started their family. After devoting herself to her family for a number of years, she went back to work at Doctors Hospital in 1968. She later retired as a disease robbed her of her eyesight. Always independent, Lorraine lived on her own well into her eighties.

Undoubtedly, Lorraine’s most precious possession was her family.
